We had just met and couldn't resist the photo op!

We had just met and couldn’t resist the photo op!

It has been sometime since Patricia and I got together. And there have been a lot of changes over the years. We have changed businesses at least a few times, but we have always been in sales or sales related jobs. We have lived in New Jersey a few times, Atlanta, Jacksonville, and now in Mount Pleasant, SC, just east of the Cooper River from Charleston, SC. Hair styles have come and gone, and so has facial hair…Mark’s!

We are still here!

We are still here!

After more than 25 personal real estate transactions we learned about the good, the bad and the ugly parts of real estate transactions! There are many stories to be told about some of the houses we bought, the ones we didn’t, and the ones we shouldn’t have. We learned about real estate agents from personal experience and what makes one better than another. And we learned why some agents always have loyal clients and others are always looking for new clients for their next transaction! When we made the decision to enter the business, we knew that we wanted to be the ones with loyal clients who would always refer their friends to us for their real estate needs.

Our business has done well and we are very thankful to our many clients who trusted us so much with their transaction that they trust that we will treat their family and friends with the same way. It is a great time in real estate and Mark and Patricia Fuchs Team Up for Success with our clients as we have for these many years!

Some of the women in the Dune Properties IOP office.

There are days when things just seem to come together.  The weather was very hot. The office was busy. Then someone noticed that six of the women in the office were dressed in black and white outfits. It wasn’t like anyone planned it. It just happened! Then one of the women wanted a picture of all of them together and I had a camera.

The first idea was to move outside to the Adirondack chairs in front of the office. After all, the chairs are a part of the Dunes Properties logo and these hard-working women represent the spirit of Dunes Properties on IOP and in Mt. Pleasant. That almost worked, but a car side-swiped the post protecting the sidewalk just as we were about to take the picture. We thought we had better move inside to safety.

We settled on the conference room credenza as the perfect place and then the fun began. The end result is the picture above. Not bad for a group of realtors just having a little fun.

A nice home in Wellesley Place.

We’ve had something of a heat wave for the last several weeks and this Saturday was right up there with the actual temperature in the mid-90’s. As part of the service we give to our listing clients, Patricia and I walk the neighborhood to personally distribute flyers promoting our listing. Neighbor’s often know someone looking for a home and may want them as neighbors. We want to take advantage of any means we can to market our listings. So at 1pm, a time that we thought would have the most people home, we started armed with our flyers (100 color flyers) and thanks to our client, a cold bottle of water.

What an interesting hour we enjoyed! Although the temperature was HOT, the people we met were warm and friendly. We were surprised at how many already knew us from our mailings to the neighborhood. Everyone complimented us on our marketing and a few thought they might know someone who would be interested in our listing. Meeting people face-to-face helps us to better serve our clients, but also helps us to get to know the neighborhood better. We enjoyed meeting the families and learning where they had moved from to be in Mt. Pleasant. There are a number of homes for sale in this neighborhood and many ways to market them. We use social media, direct mail and our telephone marketing hotline (and 800 number for our listings), but we enjoy meeting people and getting to know them. The temperature was hot and we worked up a sweat, however, what we will remember most about our trip around the neighborhood is the warm, friendly people, not the temperature.

We do the same for all of our clients. We would be pleased to show you how we ‘Team Up for Success’ with buyers and sellers. You can reach Patricia via email Patricia@MarkandPatriciaFuchs.com, or by phone at 843-425-0953. I am at Mark@MarkandPatriciaFuchs.com, or on 843-364-9509.

There’s a flavor on every block.

I remember my first visit to a Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream store when I was a child. There were more flavors than I had ever seen before! How could I decide which was best? I was used to vanilla, chocolate and strawberry, but now there was mango, peach, caramel and cream, and about 27 other flavors to choose from. What was I to do?

Today’s real estate market is kind of like that. There are so many homes and neighborhoods available at great prices. How can a person decide on what to choose? If you are in the market for a new home, how can you avoid being mesmerized by the 33 flavors of homes available to you? Before you start looking, know what you need! Answer some questions before you go. The first answer you need is to the question of what you can afford.

Here are a few others to consider:

  • How big of a home do we need?
    • Will three bedrooms and two bathrooms work? Or do we need more?
    • How many square feet of air conditioned space do we need?
  • What size lot do we need?
    • Do we want a large lot?
    • Are we interested in a small lot?
    • How much yard work am I willing to do?
  • Are we interested in a townhome or condominium?
  • What schools are nearby?

Once you’ve established your needs and balanced them with your wants, your Realtor® can focus the search on that target. Your Realtor® will preview a selected group of homes before spending your time in actually visiting everything in the mix. You should be able to find your home within 5 to 10 homes that you visit.

Remember Baskin – Robbins? I got sick sampling as many flavors as I could. My stomach hurt and I never bought one scoop. Avoid the stomachache in your search by knowing what you want before you go to market.

Patricia and Mark Fuchs can help you find the flavor you want most. Call 843-425-0953 for Patricia or 843-364-9509 for Mark.

Park West Dentistry, The Elite Team

I haven’t had much to say lately. Well, maybe I was being a bit lazy, but I am back with a few thoughts starting with my visit to the dentist.

I know that visiting the dentist is probably not on the top of your list of things that you want to do. It certainly hasn’t been on mine. However, we all need to have our teeth checked from time to time and finding the right dentist can be a challenge.

I started visiting dentists when I was a little boy who liked to eat ketchup sandwiches. White bread, a little butter and a lot of ketchup! It is not a good diet and it can ruin your teeth! I had lots of cavities. Then, when in high school, my parents thought I should be worked on by dental students at Loyola Dental School in New Orleans. I spent hours in the chair because after the student did some work, a professor had to check the work. All the while I sat there with a dental dam hold my mouth open and isolating the tooth being repaired. I think that experienced scarred me for life. I hated dentist!

 Most of the dentists I’ve been to in my life were interesting in a funny sort of way. One that I went to years back played opera and when he worked on your teeth you had the sense that he thought he was conducting the orchestra. I worried when the music reached a climax! Another dentist was an avid golfer. There he was with his hands in my mouth telling me about his round of golf on a local course. You’ve probably been to a few dental offices that were a bit quirky, or somewhat boring. At one time, a study of suicides showed dentists to be in the top 5 victims.

Park West Dentistry is different. You probably got that from the picture, but the office is also different. You feel like you’re in a spa, not a dentist office. The staff is very friendly and caring. While you wait your turn, you are offered water or tea. When it is your turn you are offered a warm towel for under your neck. When you are finished, you have a warm cloth to wipe your face, a bag of dental goodies and instructions on how to continue caring for your teeth. I actually feel relaxed after my visits.

If you live near Park West in Mt. Pleasant, SC, you couldn’t ask for a better dentist. Dr. Amanda Seay and her staff will make your visit a relaxing experience.
